in the still of night...
i watch you gracefully sleep,
as a small gleam of moon light
shines through the window across your face,
so calm...serene and full of innocence,
i trace my finger across your fine lines of you cheeks
until i reach the small of your chin...
you softly moan and i pull away,
not wanting to ruin this perfect moment,
you draw yourself closer to me,
i can feel the warmth of you body,
the warmth of your breath against my face,
i'm absorbed by your scent, so sweet...
for so long i have acted upon
how i felt, but never spoke it,
i wonder if you truly knew,
i inhaled deeply and rose secretly to your ear...
I LOVE YOU.... and gave you a soft kiss on the lips,
a slight smile came upon your face,
and faded as quickly as it has shown,
i wonder if you heard me...
In the still of the night...
